We have perhaps almost already forgot. Our minds and bodies absorbed it. Now it’s oly like small scare on our skin. Almost not visible. Barely discernible.


Here how it perhaps was.

In Lviv.

I dag är det årets ljusaste dag, och vägen fram hit gick via mörker. Vi samtalar och förundras. Vi planerar och resonerar. Vi väntar på framtiden, som om det inte fanns ett _nu_.

För en tid sedan fick jag rådet att starta en blogg för att nå ut med mina texter och min kunskap om Ukraina. Jag har ju haft viewpoint-east sedan 2009, och fick det rådet mig att tänka på Benedikt i romanen Därv av Tatiana Tolstaja. I ett samtal med en annan invånare i landet Fjodrograd upptäcker han till sin förvåning att inte alla har svansar. “Har du svans?” … “Har du en blogg?”

Här kommer kanske en annan nyhet. Jag har en kamera. En Olympus OM-1. Jag använder ibland annorlunda filmer i min kamera. Som här, när jag använder Kodak Vision 250D.

We run to the buzzer.
Warm snow float down from the trees.
We lean against our wishes,
of eternal spring.

Swifts on our minds

Now we have entered,
the time when swifts switch our minds,
towards light and hope.
Away from doubt and darkness.

Let us recall this,
when darkness returns.

In every shadow,
light is hiding.

On every shadow,
you find a way of light.
In all your breaths,
you are free.

Even when you are captured.
